Cole Tolley named Student of the Month
C-E senior earns award from Heartland Power and KJAM Radio
COLMAN, S.D. – School officials describe Colman-Egan senior Cole Tolley as considerate, persevering and a young man of integrity.
“He works hard and is always willing to lend a helping hand,” said C-E School Counselor Megan Bundy. “He participates skillfully in many activities, excels in the classroom and more importantly, shows kindness to others.”
For his achievements and character, Tolley has been named Student of the Month by Heartland Consumers Power District and KJAM Radio.
Tolley is the son of Tom and Amber Tolley. His extra-curricular activities include golf, football and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He’s also a member of the National Honor Society.
Outside of school, Tolley teaches Sunday school at his church and enjoys watching movies, playing games with his family and attending sporting events.
After high school, he plans to attend Southeast Technical Institute to pursue a degree in mechanical engineering.
The “Student of the Month” is awarded through a partnership of Heartland and KJAM Radio in Madison and recognizes exceptional students in one of five area school districts. Heartland provides wholesale power to the cities of Arlington, Colman, Howard, Madison and Volga, all of which are in the KJAM listening area.
Each month of the school year, Heartland presents an outstanding student from one of these schools with a recognition certificate and small token, and advertisements announcing the winning student air on KJAM Radio. Officials from each participating school nominate students for the award.
This is the ninth year Heartland and KJAM have teamed up to offer this program.
